Chris Fabbri’s Grandfather, Joseph Febo Fabbri,
born and raised in Rimini, Central Italy, Emilia-Romagna,
was an artist, producing a number of drawings in the 1920s.
Joseph came to America early 1927
and eventually gave Chris the drawings
that he produced. Each piece has the art school
ink stamp and now remain in a private collection.
Chris visited his grandfather when he was living
in Southern Maine in the 1980s, to draw and paint the landscape.
